According to numerous sources, Ariel Winter's mother filed a police report alleging that she found 14 year old Ariel in bed with her 18 year old boyfriend which would be a crime. The police report was filed on October 6, which is three days after Ariel's mom lost custody. However, the mom found the couple in bed on September 24. See if you think this might be what happened.
Mom catches couple in bed and freaks out. Daughter is just 14 and boyfriend is 18 and tells them it is against the law and the 18 year old should date someone who is closer to his age. The mom and daughter get into a huge blowout fight. Ariel goes to her sister's house and tells sister what happened. Ariel wants to be with boyfriend. Sister files paperwork to become guardian. Mom loses first round in court. Mom files police report which she should have done in the first place, but didn't. This is where it gets tricky. Did she not file the police report because she does not want to lose her meal ticket? Did she not file because she had not decided if it was wrong? So many interesting options. I do know that Ariel's boyfriend has a good chance of going to jail. 18 with a 15 year old is a misdemeanor. 18 with a 14 year old is a felony. There is no defense and are no exceptions.
